Final Fantasy XIII screens get their Odin on

Some new Final Fantasy XIII screens have hit the net, showing off more of Odin, the obligatory summon that finds his way into most FF games worth their salt. Like all summons in the game, Odin will be controlled either as a player character, or as a “Gestalt,” where he’ll transform into some sort of vehicle for one of the characters. Odin’s Gestalt mode allows Lightning to ride his horse. Snazzy!

As we’ve come to expect from Final Fantasy XIII screens, the new images are quite gorgeous and make the battles look like some of the best combat yet seen in the RPG series. I’m not officially in anticipation of this game after the lengthy wait and Spring 2010 still seems like a long way away. 

How about you guys? Got the hype tinglies yet?
